the silence that allows...
video etude, (1990).
"the silence that allows..." is a visual, musical, and sound poem. It is a mix of journal writings, performances and images for many years in the 1980's and early 1990's. A grounding theme throughout these materials was a quest for understanding the dichotomies of race and gender which have inevitable influence over desire. This work was made possible by the participation and collaboration of a network of friends, artists, martial artists, and dancers. The final video was composed and edited during a first visit to the Banff Centre in Canada in 1990 - whereupon tools for exploring video synthesis and electronic music were throughly explored and applied.
